Synopsis

A band of friends hide in the darkness below the streets of Seattle, Washington, living outside the laws that govern and record every aspect of modern life. After the death of their parents, and without implanted microchips to identify them, they are fugitives, and Matra finds herself their new leader.

Raised in secret by her parents, Matra has never ventured outside the safety of her home. For her entire life, she's known only the few people in her tiny group, including the man she is all but betrothed to. But as days bleed into weeks underground, the group is faced with loss, fear and betrayal while they search for a way to escape discovery and assimilation. To succeed in their search could be dangerous; to fail would mean the end of everything.

Despite it all, Matra forges on, hoping to bind the group together as a family, and lead them to a new, free life. But she can’t stop thinking about another--an Immortal boy who fled with the rest of his kind when Matra was only a girl. And when Matra is confronted with the truth of her partner's character, she discovers a shocking truth about herself.

Faced with a decision she never expected to make, Matra is thrust on a path she can scarcely believe until it's staring her in the face with wide eyes.
